"A crisis is only a crisis if I make it one."
This goes hand in hand with the other bit of advice that I've been clinging to:
Let little things go.
How much time we spend---and waste---in hassling over the little things in life. The person to cut us off on the freeway; forgetting to make a phone call; someone not following through on a promise; the house not being just right.
When we hold on, we are the ones who suffer.
Little things are little things, and we can fit almost everything into that category. Move on.
OK, so sometimes my moving on is at a snail's pace, but I'm trying. :)
